Erik Haula was not present at practice today despite reports to the contrary.

The Vegas Golden Knights have placed Erik Haula on IR, making room to call-up Vadim Shipachyov from the AHL.

However, Haula is still practicing with the team and is alongside Shipachyov and Leipsic. There will likely be an update made available at the conclusion of practice. Haula's injury might have something to due with his fight with Tomas Tatar last night.

Everything is new," said Haula. "It's a great opportunity for everybody, so you just start building from there. Everyone is new, so we've just got to kick it into gear as fast as possible and spend a lot of time with the guys on the team and get to know each other. I'm really excited for this opportunity in my career." He is expected to kill penalties and has proven over the last two years that he is capable of contributing offensively.
